Looks amazing! I have these 744s right now. I like them but hard to find A/S RTF tires. So looking to get another set of 740Ms.

I like the 740m a lot. I ordered my car with the 21s but just picked up a set of 740m with Michelin Alpin 5 snow tires. Iím really pleased with how they look. I almost like them better than my 21s!

Did you get a spare as well? I believe they aren't run flats? Also were you able to fit 275/40 R21 tires on 315/35 R21 wheels? Ftpohyeah

m50i standard comes with 747 22" staggered set in Canada. I need a bit more rubber on the tire to handle the crappy road in Quebec, so optioned mine with 740M. It's not staggered, so loook not as impressive as the staggered set. But hopefully the ride quality is better and less chance to scratch the rim

Not as muscular of a stance with the skinny 275's in the rear as opposed to the beefy 315's.

apologize for such late reply.
i dont have the spare tire.
275/40/21 tires does fit on our 21 inch 741m wheels. it actually doesnt look bad, or weird or off.

the best part is the car feels exactly the same. for my M2, every time right after swapping winter for summer or vice versa, i could feel a distinct difference when the car moves.
